    • IN-GAME ITEM – Collector’s Edition preorders will include a reward code to receive an exclusive in-game item, the Onion Helm.*
    • EARLY ACCESS – Play 8 days prior to the release of the Windows PC Standard Edition (timing of access subject to initial server capacity).
    • BEHIND-THE-SCENES DVD – Get an insider look at the making of FINAL FANTASY XIV, with exclusive video content, interviews and more in this special documentary DVD.
    • SECURITY TOKEN – A FINAL FANTASY XIV–branded Security Token for use with your regular password.
    • TRAVEL JOURNAL – Record your travels in this beautifully bound journal filled with pages of never-before-seen concept art.
    • RIGHT OF PASSAGE – Redeem a voucher to receive your fully-personalized Right of Passage Certificate, each stamped with a unique serial number.

    Already have my Collector's Edition preordered.

    I'm really pumped for this game. It's the only one I've been extremely excited for in awhile.

    I want the Collector's Edition only for the art. It is simply too awesome ;_;.
    I wish there was an artbook with every single Amano drawing made for the Final Fantasy series, I'd buy it.

    I have been trying to get into the beta to see if it will be worth getting and trying out. I am getting a bit tired of WoW to be honest and god knows when Guild Wars 2 will be out.

    Curious... FF11 was annoyingly difficult. Is this game slated to be the same? (Did they learn anything from WoW?)
